子夜吳歌

Language: Chinese (中文)

長安一片月,
萬戶擣衣聲;
秋風吹不盡,
總是玉關情。
何日平胡虜?
良人罷遠征。

Under the moon

Language: English after the Chinese (中文)

Under the crescent moon's faint glow
The washerman's bat resounds afar,
And the autumn breeze sighs tenderly.
But my heart has gone to the Tartar war,
To bleak Kansuh and the steppes of snow,
Calling my [husband]1 back to me.
